The first day of being 21 is one of the best day of my life. You'll see why...
Was having dinner with my family at this fish head steamboat somewhere along serangoon. Went there because i knew that the next day my darling will feed me nothing but ang moh
food. There is this chinese part of me that craved for their famous salted egg prawns
! Had a good meal but got scolded by my mum cos that small dinner cost like a lot. Nearing the end of dinner my darling was so disappointed with the fact that i'm not home yet. that was already 11pm. she keep hinting me to go home (not really a hint, it was quite obvious lol) so i rushed home and reached at 12.05 like that. So this is what happened:
Woke up at 10.30am feeling nuah
but baby was all ready to give me the perfect birthday! Lets go:
Breakfast at Prive @ Keppel Bay. Ordered the Ultimate Breakfast and Chamomile tea. The breakfast presents itself well. The eggs are soggy wet delicious but the bacon can be more crispy. The tea is light to me, nice aroma, no sugar needed. Refreshing morning!
Straight after she brought me to my next destination. This birthday she kept her mouth sealed and made me keep on guessing. Well done! haha
So this is where we landed:
Siloso Beach Resort! This place is Mei De Lor
. Show you what i meant.
There is a second floor! The open top roof has 2 sunbeds and a small jacuzzi and you can see siloso beach right in front of you. I can see what the people in Cafe del Mar are up to haha. Wavehouse is right beside it.
Hang around, swam in the pool and its dinner time!
So this is where my baby brought me to:
The White Rabbit @ Dempsey
This place used to be an old chapel. That explains the classic windows and high ceiling. So ah-tas!
Service is their number one priority and there is no where else that I have experienced this kind of attention. The waiter really looked at me drinking water and fill the glass straight after i finished. Really Straight After. This is what i call attention.
The food goes well with the high expectations following the whole place and service. Even their standard butter for bread is worth commenting. Its flavourful but light, not so salty. Free flow soft and onion buns goes well with it. Onion bun carries this onion aroma but won't stink your mouth. First time baby ate 2 buns!
Starter we had Brochette of Roasted Sea Scallops and Crispy Pork Belly
. Its like sio bak
with grilled scallops. Meat is soft and the fats beneath the crispy skin is melt-in-your-mouth. Not salty like those you can find in chinese stalls. Scallops are fresh and the texture is just right. The salad under all the good stuff is really appetising with the hoy wai
I had the Roasted Rack of Lamb
. Its cooked to perfection. Soft and easy to chew on.Gives a different flavour when paired with little olives.
Baby had the Crispy Duck Leg Confit
with potato and salad as sides. Loved this kind of salad. The best part of this is the duck skin. Crispy and let the fats do their magic.
Dessert was Baked Alaska
. Crunchy on the outside, cold and soft in the inside. Fruits around it gives extra kicks when paired with the ice cream. Nice!
So after dinner...
Surprise! Haha so good to see everyone on my special day. Really appreciate that fact that they all made their way down to sentosa and wished me happy birthday. Indeed i had a really happy one. Thanks for stepping into adulthood with me and i hope years down the road we all will still be celebrating our birthdays together.
And of course thank you so much baby for putting in so much effort into this. You are truly a gem to me and never would i thought that my birthday will be this big. without you i'll just be slacking somewhere haha. thank you so much all these years and i hope i will make you as happy as i am on your every birthday. I love you honey =)
